After some last second fine-tuning and finagling on his car, Balog started the 30-lap feature race in eighth place. Whatever the team discovered in their heat race and implemented onto the car right before the race worked. At the drop of the green flag Balog was gone, methodically working his way towards the front with each lap. By lap ten he was solidly positioned in second place.

Balog patiently waited for lapped traffic to clear before to attempting his move into first place. However he never had to make that move, with a little help from the race leader, who got himself tangled with lapped traffic, Balog took the lead on the ensuing restart. With 16 laps remaining Balog set a blistering pace and went unchallenged the rest of the way, collecting his third feature win of the year and the tenth of his IRA career.
The 'King of the Kenosha County Fair' now has four IRA feature wins in the last six starts.

The win also kept intact the teams run of top-five finishes, which is now at 14 straight at IRA events. The team also now holds a 66 point lead in the IRA standings with ten events remaining.

"Us being faster than everyone else has a lot to do with our set-up," says Balog. "We hit the set-up right on the head that night, and I could put the car where ever I need to. That was the biggest key in getting us to the front from our eighth place starting spot."

Steadiness resulting from their key preparations has the team staring right into the heart of a championship, and we wondered how he felt about that?

"We feel the championship is getting closer to becoming a reality, but in order for us to capitalize on it, we will just need to stay consistent, like we have been for majority of the year and the points will take care of themselves."

"Well, we're going to some tracks here pretty quick that we have had success at in the past, so hopefully we can continue what we've been doing, and we can get a few more victories before the year is over," adds Balog.

"We would really like to thank K&N for everything they have done for us this year – we hope to continue to help promote the best products ever with a championship as the year goes on."

After their win at Beaver Dam Raceway, last weekend at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wisconsin, Balog was crowned "King of the Kenosha County Fair." The win gives the B Squared Motorsports team their fourth IRA feature win in the last six IRA races.
